Podcast Plug


Once in a while I will do a plug.
This time I want to share about a podcast by this amazing young woman.

Deborah Chan has over 12 years experience in community development projects and missions work. Bearer of a Bachelors in Mass Communication with double majors in Journalism and Cultural Studies, she is also a freelance writer and sustainable tourism consultant. Her writing has appeared in national and international publications including Travel & Leisure, Asian Geographic and the Rough Guides. Deborah has also authored “Live to Last” a heart-gripping memoir written to inspire youth and young adults to step up and step out to make a difference in this world.

Now she has launched a podcast. Worth nipping over and having a listen. Together with her husband, they have launched Built to Last – apt for the time now.

Staying Serene


Have no anxiety about anything,

but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving

let your requests be made known to God.

And the peace of God,
which passes all understanding,

will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6,7

Integrity When No One Sees


The virus has come to my nation, spreading itself speedily. To try and slow down the spread, a fortnight of restricted movement has begun. At the start of these two weeks, I am reminded to live (walk) in the midst of our abodes (within my house) with simplicity, uprightness, integrity, and from the inside out. That our conduct shown in our emotions, passions, is that of courage and boldness (perfect heart)

Start as we mean to continue, and number our days well.

The One That Got Away….


It was a gift.

From the neighbour.

We looked forward to having it.

Somewhere in the jungle of my back garden and the flora next to our house is the meat for our Chinese herbal soup.

I was having problems with my shoes. So I thought it was about time to get a new pair.

I like my shoes black or white. It makes matching of my bags easier, especially when you don’t have a big budget like Imelda Marcos did or Paris Hilton does (she has one THOUSAND pairs?!)

However, if you are anything like me, you dread the idea of shopping, especially for shoes. Perhaps it is because as I get older I get more particular (read “fussy”) I find it almost impossible to get a good pair and when I do, my size is often out of stock.

Hence it was with trepidation I set off one afternoon.

Two hours I walked.

By the time I finished, I got a blister at the back of my right heel and I didn’t realise it. My feet were so uncomfortable that I didn’t know!

By the time I found out, the blister had broke.

So I had to let it heal.

But before it got totally healed, I wore a pair of closed shoes.

Yes, it got worse.

(And here is what you have been waiting for)

The picture on the left (#1) is when it was healing. The one on the right (#2) is where it got worse again.

Do you wonder why I am staying off my regular shoes for a while! blister
